Purtroppo zdenka non si è presentata all'appuntamento e non ha risposto neppure ai messaggi che le ho scritto

Zdenga ci ha fatto conoscere una parte meno turistica di Praga ma che vale la pena visitare per conoscere la storia della città e perché è davvero molto bello come posto. Lei ha arricchito le spiegazioni con aneddoti interessanti.

Zdenka parla perfettamente italiano, è disponibile e simpatica, non si perde in piccolezze durante le sue spiegazioni per farti apprezzare i dettagli importanti. Torneremo domani a visitare un’altra zona di Praga con lei!
